Happy Wednesday Ladies!
I hope everyone is doing well and not too stressed from shopping for gifts! I love giving presents, I am like a kid when it comes to buying for others, and just the holiday season in general. As you know I do most of my shopping on-line and scored this favorite brick brown faux pencil skirt from Zara. One of my favorite stores
My hubby wanted to get this shot with all of the flowers, tress and Christmas tree
I did buy this early on, as sometimes my size can go out of stock quickly and I do like their faux leather skirts, the color really stood out to me. .I have much in my closet this skirt can go with , and that is one thing I consider when adding to my wardrobe. How many other pieces do I have that can go with this? Is this practical? Will I wear it alot?
Here we were at “Barkdale” ( aka Birkdale) without my pups. I wanted to put them in their santa suits after they just got groomed as they look so cute, but it was too cold. We had to get some pictures by the tree and my hubby also had to get the mechanical Christmas Bear picture, as I call my little boy, teddy bear,or bear as he sits like it with his hind legs, and looks like one.
Speaking of mechanical Christmas bears, I used to be petrified of this Talking Tree, when I was around 5 or so, as it was in a department store my parents would take me. It had this big goofy face, and would talk to you once you got close enough. My mom said I used to cry just seeing it! Needless to say, I don’t break down or anything with the mechanical bears, I have outgrown it!
I found this cardi as part of the Mad Men collection, on Ebay, and loved it. It is rather light, so good for in between fall and winter seasons. I am a fan of leopard, as alot of us are, if it is done tastefully.
I do alot of my shopping on Ebay and Poshmark as far as finding some great deals. I like to pair some slightly more expensive pieces like the skirt with an inexpensive item like this cardi.
How do you shop? Do you like to mix and match pricier or designer pieces with other finds from thrift stores or Ebay? How do you now choose items to go in your closet? Do you have a fear of mechanical talking trees? 🙂
Have a wonderful day
